Photographer's Note

The various Tai groups living in these isolated valleys evolved separate dialects and clothing over the centuries and Black Tai speak their own dialect though to a non-specialist it can be difficult to tell apart from that of the closely related White and Red sub-groups. Generally speaking they favour black colour, as their name suggests, for their head scarves and sarongs, though blouses seem to be in any shade. Today they are to be found in much of Lai Chau and Son La provinces.
